short and sweet, beautiful views but great for kids!
good easy hike with a 6 and 4 year old. beautiful scenery as well.
easy stroll to an uncommon beautiful lake.
It's a beautiful area. The hike was nice. Well maintained trail with adjoining trails if you want to do more.
Pretty boring hike if you like a little challenge. If you like an easy afternoon walk this is the hike for you.
It was a very nice short hike. The pond was full of frogs and you could hear them all day. Just right for kids and someone who is new to hiking
Perfect first hike. Loved the benches by the Lake.
Great little hike. Saw lots of wildlife.
A nice hike with great views.
Easy trail with a couple side loops to add if you want. This was our 3rd hike and we used it as a walk after breakfast just to stretch our legs and burn off some food. Lake was glass smooth. I will attempt to upload a photo or two.
A nice little mid-week hike. Most of the elevation gain is in the first 1/3 mile. Then your looking at a nice view of the lake. The trail loops around the lake, providing several nice views, areas to relax and even a few benches along the way. There was a solo fisherman out on the lake. Beginning blooms of the bleeding hearts and lots of skunk cabbage in full bloom.
